Grilled Vegetables with Miso Sauce

Serves 2

30 minutes or fewer

Grill-roasted Asian-style vegetables hit the spot on a weeknight. Serve over a bed of steamed basmati or jasmine rice.
  • ¼ red kuri or kabocha squash, seeded and cut into ½-inch-thick slices
  • 1 small red onion, sliced
  • 2 tsp. sesame oil
  • 1 large bok choy, leaves separated
Miso Sauce
  • 1 Tbs. miso paste
  • 1 clove garlic, minced (1 tsp.)
  • ½ tsp. light brown sugar
  • 1 tsp. sesame oil
  • ½ tsp. rice vinegar
  • 2 green onions, chopped (¼ cup)
  • 1 Tbs. toasted sesame seeds

1. To make Vegetables: Brush squash and onion slices with oil. Spray grill with cooking spray, and lay squash slices on grill. Close, and cook on medium-high 10 minutes, or until squash is tender; transfer to plate. Place onion slices on grill; cook 4 to 5 minutes, or until crisp-tender; transfer to plate. Place bok choy leaves on grill; cook 3 to 4 minutes, or until wilted and crisp-tender; transfer to plate.

2. Meanwhile, to make Miso Sauce: Combine miso paste, garlic, brown sugar, and 1/4 cup water in small saucepan. Bring to a simmer over medium heat. Cook 1 minute, or until miso dissolves and begins to bloom. Remove from heat; stir in oil and vinegar. Fold in green onions and sesame seeds.

3. Serve Grilled Vegetables drizzled with Miso Sauce, or serve Miso Sauce on the side.
